auxillary belt tensioner

done a search and came accross this thread

https://www.lancerregister.com/showth...=aux+tensioner


not yet tried it but i cant budge my tensioner with a 1/2 " ratchet in the hole is it possible to get it off and soak it in wd to get it working again so i can get a bearing sorted or is it a case of new complete tensioner

thanks in advance

just checking, are you putting the square end of then 1/2" extension in the square hole and moving it the correct way?

Counter clockwise mate, they are tight to move. Only moves just over an inch 'till the holes at the bottom of the unit meet up to pin.

Have you checked to see how tight the belt is also?

stu yer putting the square end in and just wont budge,the belt is tight it just makes that horrid noise when cold as described in the other thread i pasted on this 1 so thought id change the bearing or get it off so can check it, is there any other way of getting it off ie by taking the belt off somewhere else to get the tensioner off to free it up

i doubt you'll break anything with just a ratchet, unless it is already broke

I have done the bearing change as per the link in the first post on my evo7 when it started making a noise, simple fix, think the bearing only cost a about £3 from a local bearing supplier.

can only find 1 12mm bolt that holds it on which is the one above the oil filter and just goes tight and feels like it gonna ring off so il try it again when engine run a bit to get a bit of heat in it, cant find any other bolt other than the 14mm one that goes through centre of bearing can some 1 show me where exactly the bolts are pleeeeease
